Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 6 Up-A feast for curious students who are interested in history as well as law. Each trial is profiled in a two-to-five page entry that contains an information box with the vital statistics; an in-depth essay describing the events leading up to the trial, key moments, and the aftermath of the decision; and a short list for further reading. The cases are organized chronologically under 13 headings: the constitution, family law and reproductive rights, freedom of speech, human rights, negligence, assassinations, espionage, murder, political corruption, military trials and court martials, religion and heresy, treason, and war crimes. Each volume has an identical glossary, table of contents, alphabetical and chronological lists of the trials, and index. Black-and-white photos and cartoons add interest. The authors have done an excellent job of identifying relevant information and describing the significance of the legal process. What makes this resource so useful is the broad coverage that spans many countries and historical periods; the trial of Socrates (399 B.C.E.) is discussed as is Roe v. Wade (1973), the Titanic Inquiry (1912), and the Oklahoma bombing trial of Timothy McVeigh (1997). Anti-Semitism is treated in the Leo Frank case in Atlanta (1913) and racism in the Scottsboro Trials of 1931-1937. Unfortunately, the volumes contain several copy-editing errors and legal citations are not included. These quibbles aside, this is a stimulating work that will have students browsing well beyond their assignments.-Priscilla Bennett, State University of West Georgia
